Less infant mortality- infants born in short pregnancy gaps have poor health and have a greater risk of survival. Prevents sexually transmitted disease – using contraceptive methods prevents the spread of sexually transmitted diseases including HIV. Population control- family planning helps in population growth and control. Pregnancy Prevention Methods There are several methods for birth control. Some are discussed below: Birth control using barriers In these methods barriers are used to prevent the sperms from reaching the egg in the ovary thereby preventing fertilization of the sperm and egg to produce an embryo. External barriers include condoms, diaphragm and cervical caps. Condoms are used by both males and females. Diaphragm and cervical caps are used by females to prevent the passage of sperms into the uterus. Use of hormone Some hormones prevents the release of egg from the ovary thereby reducing the risk of pregnancy. This includes estrogen hormone tablets to prevent the release of egg by affecting the hormone levels that facilitate this process. Other hormone medication includes Progestins which helps in forming mucus around the vagina thereby preventing the passage of sperms into the uterus. Intrauterine device An intrauterine device is placed inside the uterus and prevent the reach of sperms to the egg. Permanent technique for birth control- vasectomy and tubal ligation These are permanent solution for birth control in couples who do not want to have children in future. Vasectomy is performed in men and prevents the passage of sperms into the semen. In tubal ligation, the tubes of the fallopian tube are cut thereby preventing the egg release in women. Both the surgeries are minimal invasive and are performed under a local anesthetic. Tubal ligation can also be done during a C section after discussing with the couples.
